Doesnt the place look great! Members of our Decorating Committee hit the dcor out of the ballpark when they made the Gym and Cafeteria look fantastically patriotic for our Canada 150 Celebration. We are going to leave the decorations up for all to enjoy as this birthday bash is so big we might as well celebrate well into the fall.

Kims Korner Here we are Summer! And Happy 150th Canada! As I write this I am preparing for my summer vacation, and will sadly miss the SEESA 150 Canada celebration. I am confident this will have been a wonderful day. Thanks to the Canada 150 committee for working on this very special celebration. Also thanks to the kitchen staff and volunteers for rolling with all the special menu requests! Years ago summer programs at SEESA did not exist! I am so happy to see that summer fitness programs and clubs are now choosing to meet all year through. Summer for the office staff is busy with program planning and grant applications. The Board will be working on strategic planning and Board development. The Holyrood Bench Project has now wrapped up with the last bench going out June 15. Again thanks to the very talented Bench Crew. The demand for benches continues as we are selling them for $100. This project has inspired other communities to sponsor their own bench project (YAY!) we may just be back in the bench business next year! Congratulations to all! On June 3 the Holyrood Community celebrated the annual Holyrood Hosedown. SEESA donated freezies for the kids to enjoy during the event. Have you seen the Book of Fabulous? This is a little white binder located at the front desk. When something wonderful happens or someone goes the extra mile for you please show your appreciation by writing a little note in this book. LETS CELEBRATE!
Have a wonderful summer!
After several years of waiting our roof is finally going to be replaced. This process will begin soon and take an estimated 3 months. During this time there will be construction vehicles parked in the west parking lot. There will also be a fair bit of construction noise.
If you are sensitive to the smell of
solvents you may wish to attend SEESA
